SuperCom Wins $3.7 Million National Electronic Monitoring Contract in Czech Republic

By Ken Briodagh March 20, 2017

SuperCom, a global provider of secure solutions for the e-Government, Public Safety, HealthCare, and Finance sectors, has recently announced that its M2M division has been selected by the Czech Republic's Ministry of Justice to deploy the company’s PureSecurity Electronic Monitoring Suite, a solution aimed at increasing public safety, reducing prison overcrowding and lowering recidivism by tracking and monitoring public offenders.

The comprehensive nationwide program, set to encompass electronic monitoring of offender programs within the country, is planned to monitor up to 2500 enrollees simultaneously. According to the announcement, SuperCom will deploy the PureSecurity electronic monitoring solution to include home detention, GPS tracking, domestic violence and alcohol monitoring of offenders.


“This is a meaningful win for SuperCom that signals to the strong market demand for our EM technology and represents the market's recognition of our superior products and technologies,” said Arie Trabelsi, President and CEO, SuperCom. “This national program marks the expansion of our proprietary EM technology into yet another European country, resembling strong growth and demonstrating that more and more governments around the world view SuperCom's solution as the leading solution for their national electronic monitoring needs.”

The awarded value of the contract based on the government’s budget is $3.7 million, for a term of six years, the release detailed. The budget consists mainly of costs for purchasing the EM system and equipment, as well as recurring maintenance charges. SuperCom expects to deploy the initial order and start generating recurring revenues within 4 months of contract signing.

“The public safety market for electronic monitoring and offender tracking is projected to grow in excess of $6 billion by 2018. We see significant near and long-term opportunities to further expand our presence in this market and are actively bidding for large scale EM projects in the U.S., Europe, Latin America and Asia,” Trabelsi said.
